E I G H T months of Jo

E I G H T months!


Holy moly!  I swear time goes by so much faster with your second child.  As with each monthly update....each month keeps on gettin' more and more fun!  Jolie is just as sweet as pie and I don't think I could possibly be more in love with this sweet chunk!

Weight: tba
Height: tba
Hair: Blonde
Eyes: blue/green
Clothes: 6-12 months
Diapers: just bumped up our next diaper bundle to size 4!

EAT:
Schedule goes as follows:
6:00: 6 oz
9:00 fruit + cheerios or fruit + yogurt
11:00: 6oz
2:30/3: 60z
5:00 veggie
7:00: 8 oz

SLEEP:
You are a great little sleeper!  You go to bed exactly at 7 on the dot and sleep until 6/6:30.  You have gotten so good at self soothing, I can now just lay you down and walk out and you put yourself to sleep, although, when daddy is home to watch sissy I do like to still rock you at least once a day.
You nap around 8:00 for like 30/45 mins then 11:00 for 2 hours and 3:30 for an hour.
You sleep with your little security blankets and paci just like your sister did.  Every time I look at you on the monitor you are snuggled up with both.

PLAY:
We have two little baskets with baby toys, I keep one in the playroom and one in the living room.  I can sit those beside you and you will dump them out and go from toy to toy. You also love to play with anythinggggg that belongs to sissy.  You are constantly stealing her crayons and putting them straight to your mouth...to which she always says "noo joweeeee, not for babies!" and yanks them away. You love love the water...bath time and pool time are your favorite times for playing.  You love to splash and kick.

MILESTONES:
1) crawling!  you finally took off...well, I guess I wouldn't say took off, you are far from fast....but you are crawling clear across a room these days.  If you want something bad enough you will crawl for it, but you far more prefer being carried and will plop down to your belly and yell for me.  Can we say spoiled?  

2) pulling up!  Along with crawling came pulling up on furniture.  You can now pull yourself up to your knees on the coffee table, couch...and pretty much anything you can get your hands on.  You haven't quite got the hang of getting up to your feet yet though.

3) Eating solids!  we have given you regular ol' people food several times in your highchair and you have loved everything we have given you so far.  chicken, mashed potatoes, cheese and deli meat, rice.

4) giving sugars!  This is my favorite milestone of them all.  I can say give me sugar Jolie and you will open your mouth and plant one right on my face.  Oh how I love the open mouth baby kisses!

FIRSTS:
First time to the beach!
First time in the pool!

& you love loved both!

Dearest Jolie,

I can't believe you are 8 months, mobile and sweeter than ever! Oh how I wish I could just freeze you just like this!  You are the easiest, sweetest baby ever and you make your mommy want four more just like you!

Time is flying and I can't believe I am already planning your first birthday.  Girl, you need to slow down missy!  You are the biggest lover and I am pretty sure I could...and do kiss on those cheeks all day long.  You love to be cuddled and kissed and sang to..and all of the above make you light up with the biggest of smiles.  You smile with your whole self and its the sweetest thing in the whole. wide. world.

You are such a petite little thing, already tinier than all your little friends...but thats ok, so is mommy and good things come in small packages girlfriend :)  Your blonde hair and blue eyes have mommy and daddy in constant amazement that you are in fact ours! haha.  You love your sister something fierce and that only grows more and more with each passing day.  You are a total mamas girl and well  lets be honest, that just makes me happy happy happy.  

Happy 8 months to our JoJo, Jolie bean, Jolie Polie and as sissy fondly calls you...chubba little wubba!

XOXO
Mommy & Daddy
